New verjus from Levin Wines with Nathan Outlaw

Loire Valley winery Levin Wines has released a verjus in partnership with chef Nathan Outlaw.

Relatively similar to grape juice, verjus is a juice made from pressing unripe grapes, giving it high acidity and health benefits that make it a popular cooking ingredient.

Verjus by Nathan Outlaw is made organically from hand-picked, basket-pressed green grapes, and is available both in bottle format and in two-litre and three-litre bag-in-box.

With a pH of 2.3, its tartness is higher than that of vinegar or lemon juice, and the Levins and Outlaw are encouraging using it in cocktails as well as food. They worked with The Capital Hotel's head bartender Cesar da Silva to create both non-alcoholic and alcoholic cocktail suggestions where they say the verjus acts as a lifting element.

£7.99/37.5 cl, £19.50/2l BIB, £25.50/3l BIB, Verjus by Nathan Outlaw
